That’s sexist

8/10 women think men never stop being childish. 1/1 me think women can’t start weed-eaters. Go figure.

    That makes me flash on a memory from a few years back – as the event took place in a video store. (Yes siree, back in the day we didn’t have streaming, we actually had to go to the store…)

    Anyway, a family was looking for a movie. Mother, father, two boys – could have been twins or a year apart. It struck me that there was only one adult in the group, as the three boys argued about which movie to get.

    Only two out of ten humans ever actually realize that the people in the other bathroom aren’t some exotic alien species. But that would require, you know, talking with our mouths and listening with our ears, and people aren’t very good at that.

    8/10 men think women never learn to drive and that Chinese women are downright dangerous drivers.

    No kidding! ^$!%#@ Walbro needs a different mixture for every can of gas.

    Eight of ten men never stop being childish, so it looks as though the women may have actually got it right. I mean, look at our speaker of the house for example, and that Weener guy, and Whatshisname, Bubba Clinton.

    Tip; she “can’t start the weedeater” (or what have you – there are a thousand examples) because she knows you’re fool enough to just go ahead and do it yourself as if you’re the hero or something, and then she despises you for being such a sucker for her and pandering to her weaknesses. That’s how “love” ( which was never love to begin with) turns to hate.

    I feel you Uncle. Although my wife does know how to run the lawn mower and weed whacker….they’re electric.

    The question is not really about what ratio of men are childish.

    The question is whether or not our childish behaviors and our childish wonderment and our childish innocence are endearing or disgusting to our significant other.

    My wife knows I have the sense of humor of a 9 year old, with me unable to not laugh at slapstick humor or a cheap pun. She rarely uses this against me, but when she does, it works.

  8. That Guy Says:

    Um, if it’s 8/10 men are childish, would that not be the norm? Then it would be that 2/10 men are boring dorks who will never laugh at a bugzapper.

  9. mikee Says:

    Bugzapper. I laughed. See what I mean?

  10. Todd Says:

    Hell, I act that way just because it pisses them off. If 8/10 women treated men with the same respect and equality that they expect there probably wouldn’t be any problem.

  11. bogie Says:

    I can so start the weedeater; I just tell the hubby to go play out in the yard. Yep, he thinks weed wacking is fun (and the term “weed wacker” is funny).

    That’s okay, he starts the washing machine by saying “I am low on socks.” so it evens out.

    “1/1 me think women can’t start weed-eaters.”

    This explains the popularity of battery operated weed-eaters. Unfortunately, my wife still can’t figure out where the gasoline goes in.

    See I read the survey and what i concluded is that 8/10 women are bitter bitches that just recently learned that the men in their life figured out that they could do better.

    My ex always complained that I was immature, never-mind that I was 7 years younger and from the point that we got married I had already started my career while she whittled her time away on “expressing her feelings”

    Put aside the fact that whenever we found ourselves with a stack of cash, the first thing she wanted to do was spend it. I remember as SHE was leaving she turned to me and said, “you will never find another woman like me”

    She is right, and I am happy that I never did. My wife of 10 years now understands that our relationship is one of strengths and weaknesses, she manages the daily bills (because seriously that’s a bunch of little incidentals that irritate me), her main focus is insuring that we are as debt free as possible. My focus is the investment side, because I handle risk well and have a better incite into the economic future. She cooks sometimes, I cook sometimes, she is better at Chinese food but always burns the steak, my steak’s better than a steakhouse but my vegetables taste like a salt-lick.

    I am expected to protect us from the things that go bump in the night, I am the one that wakes up to find out why our 2 year old is crying (not because she is bad at it but because he always wants daddy), I am the one that potty trained him, and she is the one that makes sure he gets fed on-time.

    Its a partnership, but to be a good partner you first have to except your partners weaknesses and not turn them into a hateful adjective such as “immature” (seriously, we don’t respond in an argument because you stupid bitches aren’t saying anything intelligent)and then you have to find ways to adapt to the weaknesses that you both posses.

    Once you have mastered that you need to step back and learn to appreciate how lucky you are to have the other person in your life.

    OR you can just be the next guys rental for the year.

    Personally I truly hope that 8/10 women die alone.

    …wishing their partner would talk about themselves and what they’re feeling more often.

    Know what group of people really focuses a lot on their feelings and needs and desires, talks about them, and acts on them almost exclusively? That’s right, toddlers, from the time they’re old enough to express themselves all the way up until the time they’re made aware that other people matter. If only there was a word to describe the process of becoming less self-absorbed and obsessed with your own feelings. Perhaps we can coin one. I wonder if anybody would notice if we borrowed the word maturation.

    This would almost be comical if it wasn’t for the fact that some of these women are mothers, and some of these mothers agree with big pharma that the appropriate way to encourage mature behavior among boys is by drugging them.

  15. A$$hole Says:

    and 8 out of 10 women are still wondering why he never called….

    3 reasons

    1) You make a stupid list of 30 reasons why you are better than men.
    2) We still don’t care, and your still not worth it
    3) 2 out of every 10 women are worth it and we were busy calling them.

  16. nk Says:

    One in seven dwarfs surveyed say they are grumpy.

  17. Critter Says:

    i don’t care if she runs the weed whacker so long as she makes me a sammich first. roast beef and swiss on whole wheat, sweety.

  18. Crotalus Says:

    Then, after making these feelings known to men, they wonder why no one wants to date them.

  19. Kristophr Says:

    8 out of 10 men act like men.

    Women who just assume that men who act like men are childish jump to conclusions.

  20. Disavowed With Honor Says:

    Alarmingly, eight out of ten women believe that men ‘never stop being childish’ – with breaking wind (FEELS GOOD AND IT’S HEALTHY), burping (FEELS GOOD, FUNNY, AND IT’S HEALTHY), eating fast food in the early hours (WHY WE FART AND BURP)and playing videogames (STRESS RELIEF) their biggest bug-bears.

    Staying silent during arguments (NOT INTERESTED IN THE TOPIC OR THE ARGUMENT… WOULD RATHER DISCUSS OR PLAY VIDEO GAMES), not being able to cook simple meals (THUS THE FAST FOOD) and re-telling the same old jokes and stories when with the lads (BECAUSE THEY’RE FUNNY) were also hailed as signs of immaturity (SO BE IT)…

    One quarter of women felt they were the ones made all the important decisions in the relationship (OTHERWISE IT’S AN ARGUMENT INSTEAD OF A DISCUSSION) with the same percentage wishing their partner would talk about themselves and what they’re feeling more often (THEY HAVE AS MUCH INTEREST AS WE DO, EVERYTIME WE TRY… IT’S NOT WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR OR WANT US TO FEEL).

    So who is being whiney about not having it their way even though they have it their way more often than not? Who is complaining that the grunt work is done without complaint? WHO IS BEING IMMATURE? Oh, I guess I am, after all… yes dear. I’m sorry. Have some chocolate and flowers while I cut the grass.

  21. Disavowed With Honor Says:

    Or they’re saying they just want us to be more like them. Let the jokes begin!

  22. Disavowed With Honor Says:

    BTW Tam, I listened to that Alien Species in the bathroom about 2 weeks ago. I heard “Pfffffffffftt” and then I giggled. Because it was funny. 😀
